There were no intraprocedural deaths and 95 % event-free survival at 6 months with LV remodelling occurring in 8 % patients.26 A second, larger study is ongoing and due to report in 2016. It is not affiliated with or is an agent of, the Oxford Heart Centre, the John Radcliffe Hospital or the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust group. Radcliffe Cardiology is part of Radcliffe Medical Media, an independent publisher and the Radcliffe Group Ltd. However, in large vessels involving extensive SB disease it may be necessary to stent SB as well. Excimer laser (308 nm) recanalisation of in-stent restenosis: thermal considerations. 2013 ACCF/AHA guideline for the management of ST-elevation myocardial infarction. Clinical results with excimer laser coronary angioplasty. Br J Dermatol 2010; 163:188-192. Zhang X, et al. 2. Gerber W, Arheilger B et al. We termed the combination of ELCA and RA the RASER technique and have developed this combination of atherectomy devices in a number of challenging cases.29–31 This combined use of atherectomy devices is particularly effective for non-crossable, non-dilatable calcified stenosis frequently encountered in daily PCI practice. Papaioannou T, Yadegar D, Vari S, et al. One major advantage of excimer laser treatment is that remission times are generally much longer than treatments relying on topical creams. A laser wavelength calibration structure is described herein which uses a tunable excimer (ArF) laser system tuned to approximately 193 nm and an improved wavelength reference source. Other than lack of informed consent and unprotected left main disease (a relative contraindication) there are no absolute coronary contraindications for ELCA. Furthermore, whereas the long CO 2 wavelength removes material thermally via principal advantage of an excimer laser is its very short wavelength. Best of all, it's free. The Excimer Laser for Coronary Intervention ST and PO are European Proctors for Spectranetics. ELCA is not recommended when the operator is aware that there is a long length of sub-intimal guidewire positioning as may exist during hybrid PCI techniques for chronic total occlusions (CTOs). The advantage of excimer laser is very clear now. With its wavelength of 308 nm, the 308 EXCIMER SYSTEM is an effective treatment solution for autoimmune diseases of the skin such as psoriasis and vitiligo. These devices are primarily used for eccentric lesions or for extensive debulking of in-stent restenosis (ISR). Beyond the balloon: excimer coronary laser atherectomy used alone or in combination with rotational atherectomy in the treatment of chronic total occlusions, non-crossable and nonexpansible coronary lesions. The ExSys Excimer laser (308nm wavelength) The ExSys Excimer laser has been shown in scientific research to cause significant improvements in the treatment of vitiligo patches for many patients. Narrowband UVB delivers energy at a wavelength between 311–312 nm for the treatment of localised psoriasis and vitiligo. The wavelength of Nd:YAG laser is 1.06 microns, while the wavelength of excimer laser is within 0.351 microns. It is essential that safety procedures should be observed when performing laser atherectomy. The threshold energy required for the penetration of UV light into tissue and the creation of a steam bubble is called ‘fluence’ (range: 30–80 mJ/mm2). Do J. E, et al. In most cases, excimer light is tolerated well. Excimer laser is an FDA approved device that uses a handheld laser wand to deliver a concentrated dose of ultraviolet light to the skin. Fernandez JP, Hobson AR, Mckenzie DB, et al. This is a situation where ELCA may be applied, with a high success rate in un-crossable or un-dilatable stenoses. Excimer 308-nm light treatment. The wavelength output of an excimer laser can be changed simply by changing the gas mixture. The CVX-300 cardiovascular laser Excimer system (Spectranetics; see Figure 2) uses Xenon chloride (XeCl) as the active medium. Špecializované očné laserové centrum s jedniným 7D laserom na Slovensku, femtosekundovým laserom na odstraňovanie refrakčných chýb oka. Specific issues may arise from interruption of the saline flush or contamination with contrast, which can generate excessive heat and increase the risk of vascular perforation. The light emitted has a wavelength of 308 nm (in the UVB spectrum) with a tissue penetration depth between 30–0 μm. Both have shown similar results regarding efficacy, but have technical differences. Excimer Laser Coronary Atherectomy for Chronic Total Occlusions. The shorter the wavelength, the smaller the focal spot size. The unparalleled precision of the excimer laser makes it uniquely suited to the task of refractive corneal surgery. Clin Exp Dermatol 2015; 40:1-5. It elevates the temperature of intra-cellular water, causing cellular rupture and generates a vapour bubble at the catheter tip (photo-thermal). Excimer Laser Coronary Atherectomy in Underexpanded Stents (see Figure 6), Stent under-expansion poses a significant risk for stent thrombosis. No reflow was observed in 11 % of cases after laser and a major dissection occurred in one case. This laser emits light energy at a certain wavelength (308nm), which stimulates the pigment-producing cells in the depigmented area of the skin. (Although less commonly used, the proper term for such is an exciplex laser.) Indian J Dermatol Veneorol Leprol 2015; 81(6):600-5. The laser fibres of eccentric laser catheters are focused toward one hemisphere. Note: Excimer-grade CaF 2 and MgF 2 substrates are available for laser cavity optics and are available with transmittance traces for an additional charge. See smartphone apps to check your skin. For example free running ArF has a bandwidth of approximately 500pm FWHM. Mehran R, Mintz GS, Satler LF, et al. Laser catheter size selection is primarily based on: (a) the severity of the lesion; (b) the reference vessel diameter and; (c) consistency of the target material12(see Table 2). Hansch set up of a dye laser. The 0.9-mm X80 catheter is selected in the vast majority of balloon failure cases since this catheter provides the widest range of power and repetition rate to maximise the chances of procedural success. Dahm JB, Topaz O, Woenckhaus C, et al. Bittl JA, Sanborn TA, Yardley DE, et al. All rights reserved. Excimer laser coronary angioplasty. The percutaneous excimer laser coronary angioplasty (PELCA) investigators. Primary angiographic endpoints were myocardial blush grade, TIMI flow and length-adjusted TIMI frame count. Burris N, Lippincott RA, Elfe A, et al. Following this safety checklist, the laser unit is warmed up and the selected catheter is connected and calibrated prior to being introduced into the body. MLI-200 / 500 / 1000 excimer lasers MLase’s modern, compact MLI excimer lasers are UV light sources at wavelengths of 193 nm or 248 nm with high pulse energies of up to 16 mJ and pulse repetition frequencies of up to 1,000 Hz. The key advantage of ELCA over alternative atherectomy interventions is delivery on a standard 0.014-inch guidewire. The larger diameter laser catheters (1.7, 2.0 mm) are primarily used in straight sections of vessels with a diameter >3.0 mm and require 7F and 8F guide catheters, respectively. Technical aspects have evolved and there is an established safety and efficacy record across a number of clinical indications in contemporary interventional practice where complex lesions are routinely encountered. Abandoned Application number AU28761/99A Inventor Peter C. Newman Richard L Sandstrom Vision correction system is ophthalmology. Clinical Indications for Excimer Laser Coronary Atherectomy. Excimer laser optics are coated or uncoated optical components designed specifically for use at excimer laser output wavelengths, the most common of which are 157 nm (F 2), 193 nm (ArF), 248 nm (KrF), 308 nm (XeCl) and 353 nm (XeF). Nonetheless, if SVG-PCI is considered necessary, ELCA remains a useful adjunctive therapeutic intervention. [Sponsored content]. The aim of this article is to describe the principles and practice of Excimer laser coronary atherectomy (ELCA), illustrating with case examples and relevant clinical data. The 0.9-mm X80 catheter permits 10 seconds activation and 5 seconds rest, reflecting its use in more complex lesions. Baumbach A, Haase KK, Rose C, et al. Prior to activation, all persons in the catheter lab, including the patient, must wear protective tinted spectacles to minimise the risk of retinal exposure to the UV light. The average length of treatment is about seven weeks. Effectiveness of excimer laser coronary angioplasty in acute myocardial infarction or in unstable angina pectoris. Balloon failure occurs when a lesion cannot be crossed with a low-profile device, or when the balloon inadequately expands with dilatation. Where f is the lens focal length, D is the beam diameter, l is wavelength of the light, p, l is the mode number. Excimer laser revascularization of saphenous vein grafts in acute myocardial infarction. Latib A, Takagi K, Chizzola G, et al. Once the system has been purged of contrast, confirmed by screening, 5 ml of saline solution should be infused followed by continued injection – at a rate of 1–2 ml/second – throughout laser activation. The TIMI score increased from 0.2±0.4 at baseline to 2.65±0.5 post-laser to 2.9±0.3 post-stent (both p<0.01 versus baseline). When this situation arises, ELCA can be used to modify the lesion to create a channel through which a Rotawire™ can subsequently be delivered distally (usually via a microcatheter), to permit RA and case completion. ELCA could potentially be of value in these cases by debulking the SB lesion to permit more predictable success with the MV-only approach. Alshiyab D et al. The role of ELCA in the treatment of CTOs is for resistant lesions: when equipment is unable to cross the lesion or proximal cap despite attaining distal wire position. Predictors of outcome of percutaneous excimer laser coronary angioplasty of saphenous vein bypass graft lesions. In: Waksman R, Saito S (editors). This is a major advantage over alternative coronary atherectomy techniques that require dedicated guidewires that are often more difficult to deliver distally. 3. Coherent, Inc. is a leading global supplier of industrial and fiber laser solutions headquartered in the United States for over 50 years. ELCA is a safer alternative, allowing predictable debulking during SVG-PCI.48,49 The low rate of distal embolisation during ELCA of degenerative bypass grafts (1–5 %) may preclude the need for routine DPD in the majority of cases.48 However, OCT images post-SVG ELCA make it is clear that there remains friable fragments that could embolise and cause no-reflow.44 Therefore, when using ELCA for SVGPCI, it is advisable to stent on a DPD system to prevent no-reflow.44 Given advances in CTO success in recent years, SVG-PCI is likely to be less frequently undertaken as operators choose to treat the occluded native vessel. This study included 66 patients and sought to demonstrate safety and feasibility. Chronic total obstructions and short term outcome: the excimer laser angioplasty registry experience. In-stent restenosis in the drug-eluting stent era. We have used ELCA more successfully in rare cases of SB restensosis (often due to stent under-expansion) guided by intra-coronary imaging with durable results. Most commonly excimer laser are ArF (193 nm), KrF (248 nm) and XeCL (308nm). However, in cases of significant calcification, the response is less favourable (calcified 79 % versus non-calcified 96 %; p<0.05).27,28 This is because the ablative effects of ELCA on calcium are minimal and success relies on the ablation of more pliable tissue within the calcific lesion, which will vary accordingly. It may also offer additional benefits as its ablative effect is transmitted through the lesion architecture, potentially weakening bonds between the constituent components of the CTO. The current indications for the use of Excimer laser atherectomy in modern interventional practice are described in this article. Saline infusion in excimer laser coronary angioplasty. J Am Acad Dermatol 2016;74:907-15. The Percutaneous Excimer Laser Coronary Angioplasty Registry. Full Record; Other Related Research; Abstract. The crater flatness indicates the high homogeneity of the excimer laser beam over the entire illumination area. 4. Excimer: Ablation on Human Hair . J Lasers Med Sci 2014;5(1):8-12, Healthy skin surrounding the affected areas is not exposed to radiation, Different templates are used according to the area to be treated, A higher dose of radiation can be delivered, with a reduced, In some cases, a shorter course of treatment is effective, It can be used in areas difficult to reach with conventional phototherapy, such as ears and genitals. Taylor K, Reiser C. Large eccentric laser angioplasty catheter. Some case reports document its use for localised severe atopic eczema, alopecia areata, cutaneous T-cell lymphoma, localised scleroderma, and granuloma annulare. Flat laser windows are suitable for high-power laser applications and as substrates for mirrors and beamsplitters. Author: Vanessa Ngan, Staff Writer, 2006. Ebersole D, Dahm JB, Das T, et al. Laser coronary angioplasty: history, present and future. 248 nm) can be focused to a Amplification . Both blood and iodinated contrast media contain non-aqueous cellular macromolecules, such as proteins, and these absorb the majority of delivered Excimer laser energy creating cavitating microbubbles, which form at the site of energy delivery, increasing the likelihood of traumatic dissection.13 By contrast, saline permits passage of light from the catheter tip to the tissue without any interference so no microbubbles are formed in this milieu. Some response may be noted as early as 6–8 treatments and complete response may take 20–30 sessions. The largest study to date, the Cohort of Acute Revascularization of Myocardial infarction with Excimer Laser (CARMEL) multicentre registry, enrolled 151 AMI patients, 65 % of whom had large thrombus burden in the culprit artery.25 Following ELCA, Thrombolysis In Myocardial Infarction (TIMI) flow grade was significantly increased (1.2 to 2.8), with an associated reduction in angiographic stenosis (83 to 52 %).25 There was a low rate (8.6 %) of major adverse coronary events (MACE). Cook SI, Eigler NL, Shefer A, et al. Updated by Dr Carolina Cordoba-Rincon, Dermatology Registrar; Dr Monisha Gupta, Dermatologist, Sydney Australia, October 2016. It is often combined with topical therapies to enhance response, for instance, topical calcineurin inhibitors and topical steroids. The excimer laser emits a cool beam of ultraviolet light of a specific wavelength (typically 193 nanometers) to precisely remove corneal tissue. Photodermtol Photoimmunol Photomed 2013; 29:27-33. Randomized trial of a distal embolic protection device during percutaneous intervention of saphenous vein aorto-coronary bypass grafts. How should I treat severe coronary artery calcification when it is not possible to inflate a balloon or deliver a RotaWire? Effects of 308 nanometer excimer laser energy on 316 L stainless-steel stents: implications for laser atherectomy of in-stent restenosis. The major limitation is presence of heavy calcification although when rotational atherectomy (RA) is required but cannot be applied due to inability to deliver the dedicated RotaWireTM (Boston Scientific), ELCA can create an upstream channel to permit RotaWire passage and complete the case with RA – the RASER technique. Applications of the Excimer Laser:  A review. Topaz O, Ebersole D, Das T, et al. FIGURE 2: Excimer laser ablation pit in NIST glass obtained at a wavelength of 193 nm after 50 laser pulses. Retrieval and analysis of particulate debris after saphenous vein graft intervention. Premium Drupal Theme by Adaptivethemes.com. Comparison of the 308nm excimer laser with the 308nm excimer lamp in the treatment of vitiligo -- a randomized bilateral comparison study. Care should be taken to select a guiding catheter that provides adequate support and that remains coaxial during lasing. DermNet NZ does not provide an online consultation service. We can investigate the correct wavelength, pulse length and energy parameters to ensure the best possible results. Development of a new technique for reducing pressure pulse generation during 308-nm excimer laser coronary angioplasty. Compared with narrowband UVB, its advantages are: Excimer laser therapy is an option for the treatment of localised vitiligo and moderately severe localised psoriasis and unresponsive to topical treatments. Occlusions in old saphenous vein grafts (SVGs) frequently consist of degenerative diffuse plaques often containing thrombus45,46 and prone to distal embolisation.47 Hence, distal protection devices (DPDs) are advocated when attempting SVG-PCI,46 but their bulky nature may prevent distal device delivery. An excimer laser typically uses a combination of a noble gas and a reactive gas. Egred M. A novel approach for under-expanded stent: excimer laser in contrast medium. Houseman TS, Pearce DJ, Feldman SR. A maintenance protocol for psoriasis plaques cleared by the 308 nm excimer laser. Further controlled studies are needed to compare excimer light therapy with topical treatments and other laser treatments in these conditions. Topaz O. Laser for total occlusion recanalization. UV laser light is absorbed by intra-vascular material and breaks carbon–carbon bonds (photochemical). » Dorr M, Vogelgesang D, Hummel A, et al. Rawlins J, Sambu N, O’Kane P. Strategies for the management of massive intra-coronary thrombus in acute myocardial infarction. The number of pulses emitted during a 1–second period is the ‘pulse repetition rate’. It is the only coronary laser-emitting device currently approved by the US Food and Drug Administration. Wavelength conversion with excimer lasers. Beggs S et al. Note that this may not provide an exact translation in all languages, breadcrumbs Formation of pressure waves during in vitro excimer laser irradiation in whole blood and the effect of dilution with contrast media and saline. A comparison between once-weekly vs twice-weekly regimens. Editorial. Topics A–Z » Excimer 308-nm light is a form of targeted phototherapy that delivers a specific wavelength (308 nm) of ultraviolet B (UVB) radiation using an excimer laser or an excimer lamp. Topaz O, Minisi AJ, Bernardo NL, et al. However, in the few cases in our practice in which we have used this technique we have discovered SB dissection because of vessel angulation, which has necessitated SB stenting – thereby defeating the purpose of using ELCA. Their portfolio of lasers, tools and systems are used in a wide range of materials processing & scientific applications. Most excimer lasers are of the noble gas halide type, for which the term excimer is, strictly speaking, a misnomer. Excimer laser facilitated percutaneous coronary intervention of a nondilatable coronary stent. Think of it as slicing 1/200 of a human hair, 1/28 of a red blood cell, or 1/39 millionth of an inch in 4 billionths of a second. The duration of treatment is shorter than for whole body phototherapy. The introduction of lasers for the treatment of vascular atherosclerosis began in the 1980s, initially for the treatment of critical limb ischaemia,1 followed by trials that supported its use in coronary circulation.2–5 However, catheters and technique were rudimentary and associated with complications.6,7 Refinements in catheter technology8 and introduction of safe lasing techniques9,10 have led to improvements in clinical outcomes.11. Treatment of in-stent restenosis with excimer laser coronary angioplasty: mechanisms and results compared with PTCA alone. In Proceedings of lasers in surgery: advanced characterization, therapeutics and systems. Topaz O, Safian RD. Shi  Q, et al. Maximal balloon dilatation (both diameter and pressure) has often already been undertaken, and RA risks metal fragment embolisation and burr stalling. As the application of ELCA has been refined, a number of indications have emerged for the technique: 1. The UV ray generated by the excimer light is delivered via a hand-held wand that focuses on the lesion. Within a stented environment ‘contrast-mileu’ lasing appears to be safe, facilitating high-pressure balloon stent expansion.36–39, This technique has been evaluated in the ELLEMENT registry of 28 patients.40 Procedural success was achieved in 96.4 % (27/28) of cases, using an increase of either 1 cm2 on intravenous ultrasound (IVUS) or 10 % using quantitative coronary angiography derived minimal stent diameter as a definition.
